commercial district in which only 1000 square feet are being used for commercial space. this project feels more in line with a residential development than a neighborhood commercial development in the fact that less than 10% of the space is being used for commercial space and the rest is being used for essential space. the analogy that came to my mind is that had houses are not considered part of an existing building, and yet, they are allowed to take up 10% of a rough area. here you have a neighborhood commercial development, in which commercial space is less than 10%. the highest and best use for this project we feel would be that the total ground-floor be used for commercial space and other spaces be used accordingly. but in regards to revenue, we look at this project and whether it would be better for the city to generate revenue in its current state or in its proposed state, and we found that the parking tax staying at 25% of gross revenue, the its current state generates 5% more revenue than is proposed -- and its proposed project, and also the fact that the propo

reportedly near or on a bus carrying u.s. soldiers at the frankfurt airport. amy kellogg is following this breaking story live from london. amy. >> reporter: yes, we're trying to piece together the information. we're getting it at this point various press agencies on the ground, pretty much now the frankfurt police and the u.s. military, who are investigating this. two people dead, we understand, one, a u.s. soldier, when allegedly a 21-year-old shooter from kosovo opened fire on a bus, carrying u.s. soldiers, at the frankfurt airport. now, this just happened, so, again, we're just piecing together this information. we believe it's one soldier killed, and the driver of the bus, and then two people taken to the hospital. you know the airport base, the medical center, which is part of the u.s. military s. based very close to frankfurt and that is the biggest u.s. military hospital outside the united states. it's where soldiers coming from iraq and afghanistan are treated. again, we don't have information about the actual soldiers on that bus, where they were going, to or from, but we kn
people elected the president and the united states played a very important role. starting in 2007, the u.s. along with others in the west, drew back involvement. instead of continuing a high level of engagement to consolidate a new democracy, congo was treated as it was a well-functioning state which the united states could safely withdrawn. the notion was dispelled when rebels waged a new battle in congo that brought death, displacement and destruction. our government has a long history of involvement in the congo from our shameful role and three decades support of a dictator. in 2000, the united states helped bring the end of fighting forces and provided key elections and the past few years, secretary of state hillary clinton visited the region and we have escalated our efforts in eastern congo. it has provided humanitarian assistance to the congo. this commitment has paid dividends in congo. but with conflict persisting and elections coming up, we must develop a strategy and full youly engage in this issue. with national elections only eight months away on november 27, the u.s. is not f
will tell you that the systems used by agencies are fine. the systems that trigger uses are fine and the budget is where the decisions are made anyway. the important data set that is used for oversight and -- by the government and public is not good enough to be used. there are efforts under way to correct the problem. it is a good example about how there it is a lot of excitement around usaspending.gov, but the data has been unusable since the 1970's. the systems we use to track tax expenditures are worse. no one bothers to go back and check whether the estimates issued are correct after the numbers come in to the irs. the two systems used to track our never reconciled with one another. legislative information is still a rite of passage for technologists like myself. at this point, congress is making positive improvements but it is still difficult to work with. we never have access to the source data. we want the files that are the base line ingredients used to draft legislation. we can see them in the pdf's released but it cannot get the actual files. one more step back. i want

to stop what it calls a disproportionate use of force against citizens. now, this follows a weekend of deadly clashes between rebels and pro-gadhafi forces. it was in misrata that some of the heaviest fighting took place. these are pictures from right after the battle there. troops loyal to moammar gadhafi stormed the city with tanks and artillery. but the opposition stood its ground. the defenders armed with anything from sticks to machine guns. the rebels claimed victory. but there were people killed on both sides. in fact, a doctor in misrata's central hospital says 42 people died on sunday, 17 from the opposition, and 25 from pro-government forces. 85 people were wounded. many in civilian clothing. the youngest was a 3-year-old killed by direct fire. >>> the capital tripoli is still in the grip of the government. on sunday, the latest of several large pro-gadhafi demonstrations was held. witnesses say police searched vehicles to try to stop anti-government protesters from taking to the streets. many of the people taking up arms against colonel gadhafi have little or no military

're not that much closer to a deal. >> gregg: to be fair, republicans are using some tricky math. they claim the total of proposed spending cuts is $102 billion but actually based on this year's budget, it's really $61 billion. both sides are guilty of mathematical deception but there will be a vote to us, harry reid announced it on both the proposals but they are not going to pass, are they? >> it looks like both will fail. i think that is what has to happen so the senate leaders can get their members to the table, they can say look, we have to negotiate. so there has to be a compromise. i think they actually have to go through those motions to convince members, hey, a deal has to happen. >> which brings plea to my next question. in the senate with new numbers, they do have enough votes to block any attempt to change the house bill. doesn't that mean that in reality the only way to fund the government is through house republicans? >> well, i don't know about that. i think everybody has a role to play here. democrats control the senate. they don't have 60 votes but they are in charge and pre

senator mike lee will be joining us in a couple of moments. the federal government charges 18 cents a gallon in tax at the pump. nothing to do with getting the oil to you. should we pay that and should the government reduce that tax when oil is spiking 33% in two weeks? >> most of the push i hear, people all wanting to raise the tax we're lucky if we keep the tax where it is, probably what we need to do is have a government friendly to business. we all need electricity. we all need gasoline for our cars. but we have a government right now that i think is the most antibusiness government or administration that we've had in my lifetime >> yet, the president appoints someone like bill daley, the brother of the soon to be exgovernor of chicago and former senior vice president, jp morgan chase to put on the front of being in favor of business. the president went along with keeping the bush era tax rates where they were in the lame duck era of congress. claiming that he is in favor of this. his words don't always match up with what he is doing. >> he claims he wants to do something about
